Mizuno MP-R5L & MP-R5W Wedges – Mizuno Japan is rolling out their latest creations and they look great, the new MP R5 wedges in two variants has been announced to release at TourSpecGolf in September.
The new R5 series wedges have two versions, the “L” which is best for a steep descending downward blow on wedge shots and the “W” which has a design for the slider who comes into the ball with a level blow. So you ready for more images and information? Follow the Jump…
Both the L & W have a similar setup as seen above, A beautiful shape at address. The key difference is the sole grind and it’s angles, The L for the steeper swinger has a more narrow sole, trailing edge relief and a grind to help the wedge stop digging and exit the turf easier. The W has a flatter sole to glide through turf easier making it easy to hit straight and high approach shots.
Mizuno has also refined their groove pattern with two different patterns, one for the approach shots that is deeper and more narrow, the other for the 56/58* lofts which are more shallow and wide, this allows spin control that matches different shot variations.
Forged of S25CM and finished in a Nickel Chrome plated satin mirror finish for the best of durability, feel, and the reduction of glare. TSG hopes they open up the new R5 models to Yoro upgrades and we will be keeping you updated with these the closer to release it gets.
